Ray Stevenson Up For Tribes Of October
Post-apocalyptic thriller set in NYC

04 May 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt

Ray Stevenson, last seen killing half the Western world in Punisher: War Zone, has signed on to star in the post-apocalyptic thriller, Tribes Of October.

The British actor will play a New York detective caught up in a battle between the surviving members of the Mafia and the last remnants of the NYPD in a city that has become a desert outpost, ravaged by heat storms.

It’s a pretty decent cast, too, with James Caan on board as the Mafia head, while Robert Duvall makes it a Godfather reunion as the NYPD chief. Jaime King has signed on to play Stevenson’s love interest, while Stephen Moyer will play a cynical detective.

Philippe Martinez will produce and direct the $25 million film, which was written by Nick Vallelonga and Paul Sloan. Filming starts later this summer on a movie that we hope will give the likeable and talented Stevenson another shot at movie stardom.

This sounds great! Ray Stevenson is a excellent actor and I'm glad Hollywood are using him because he's one of those faces you wouldn't get bored with. This new film sounds wicked and can't wait to see it, I'm up for it! More
